Brisbane Backpacking

A backpacking holiday in Brisbane offers scope for a fantastic adventure and is also an inexpensive way of experiencing the city’s wealth of man-made and natural beauty.
Brisbane has numerous cheap and efficient hostels for those on backpacking holidays on a budget and a great wealth of options for accommodation, in a wide choice of location and standards. The city centre houses the largest selection of affordable places to stay but others in places like Spring Hill, Paddington and New Farm are also recommended. The average price to expect for a reasonable dorm bed is around $25, although this will rise during the peak summer period. For cheap beach locales choose to Moreton Bay or South Brisbane, only a short ferry ride away, while those seeking hostels in the heart of the popular nightspots and close to creature comforts should head for Edward St or Ann St. Excellent transport links make the city a useful starting point for backpackers in Brisbane to visit the South Bank Parklands, pristine beaches of Moreton Bay and other wildlife hotspots that litter the nearby Gold and Sunshine coasts.
